SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR FEATURED MENTORS FOR 2018

 
 
Our 2018 featured mentor was NFL & SC Gamecock star, Sterling Sharpe. As a wide receiver, he and Brett Favre were a remarkable tandem for the Green Bay Packers. Sharpe participated in this year’s tournament, teaming up with one lucky junior golfer.
At this year’s inaugural Mentor Cup, Hall of Fame Coach Dan Brooks of the Duke women’s golf team conducted a clinic alongside his former player Kelly Tilghman on the educational opportunities golf can provide to children. We were honored to have him as a featured mentor in 2018.
Our Featured Teacher this year was Jamie Fischer who is a decorated instructor and player in the game of golf. She recently tied for 12th in the U.S. Senior Women’s Open and regularly appears on several renowned Top 50 Teachers Lists around the country. Jamie provided adults and juniors with pricesless golf lessons on Saturday morning of the Mentor Cup tournament on Tidewater’s driving range.

WHAT HAPPENED DURING OUR INAUGURAL MENTOR CUP WEEKEND

ON OCTOBER 26-27?

October 26 – Gene’s Dream Gala

On Friday, October 26th, an elegant evening at The Surf Golf & Beach Club welcomed more than 100 guests who were delighted by a surprise visit from golf’s funnyman David Feherty. After enjoying complimentary cocktails and a silent auction, guests were treated to a delicious meal while being entertained by the likes of Kelly Tilghman, David Feherty, Charlie Rymer and football great Sterling Sharpe. The night also featured a live auction with Duke men’s basketball ‘game of choice’ tickets, a 2020 Ryder Cup experience and a golf getaway with Charlie Rymer at the prestigious Honors Club in Tennessee.

October 27 – Mentor Cup Golf Tournament

On Saturday morning, October 27th, more than 50 teams gathered to christen a brand new event which featured 9 holes of captain’s choice and 9 holes of modified alternate shot at Tidewater Golf Club. Mentors and junior mentees partnered up for a chance to become the first winners of the Mentor Cup. A chilly, cloud covered fall morning gave way to a warmer, sunnier afternoon. The winning score in the Advanced Flight was an eye-popping 62! The winning totals for the Intermediate and Beginner Flights were both 75. Congrats to all of this year’s winning teams!

October 27 – FEHERTY: OFF TOUR LIVE!-

The inaugural Mentor Cup weekend ended in thrilling fashion when the hilarious David Feherty performed his wildly popular stand up comedy show at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. 150 VIP guests enjoyed a special meet and greet with David, complete with an autographed copy of his latest book.
